The 1975's Matty Healy Deactivates Twitter Account After Backlash for George Floyd Tweet

The 1975 lead singer Matty Healy has deactivated his account on Twitter after he received backlash for his tweet about the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Floyd was a 46-year-old black man who was killed by Minneapolis cops while being arrested earlier this week. In a video that was taken by an eyewitness, he could be heard saying “I can’t breathe” while an officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes.

Matty went on Twitter and wrote, “If you truly believe that ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ you need to stop facilitating the end of black ones.”

The tweet also included a link to The 1975‘s song “Love It If We Made It,” which begins with lyrics that say, “We’re f–king in a car, shooting heroin / Saying controversial things just for the hell of it / Selling melanin and then suffocate the black men / Start with misdemeanors and we’ll make a business out of them.”

Matty received a lot of backlash from people who feel that he used Floyd‘s death to promote his music.

Before deleting his account, Matty reportedly wrote this apology: “Sorry I did not link my song in that tweet to make it about me it’s just that the song is literally about this disgusting situation and speaks more eloquently than I can on Twitter.”

“This is certainly my most ‘not give a f–k’ record,” Matt recently shared about the album with Pitchfork. “Not in a nihilistic, punk, teenage, ‘we better not give a f–k so we don’t get hurt’ way, but in a grown-up way. There’s no ego in there. When I talk about myself on the album, I’m pretty much s–tting on myself all the time.”

“I really love this song. It’s really, I don’t know. It’s really nice. It’s really quite earnest. It’s quite real. I don’t really look back very much either in that regard, like properly sentimentally. So it was nice to do that…I think I just wanted to write a love letter to friendship, as opposed to every love song being about our romantic relationships. I think that our friendships are obviously our most formative relationships. So shout out to the homies,” Matt Healy said of the song to Zane Lowe on Apple Music.

The moment that we started a band was the best thing that ever happened and I wish that we could do it again,” he sings in the chorus.

Ellie Goulding Responds to The 1975's Matt Healy Suggesting People Don't Listen to Her Albums

Ellie Goulding is responding to The 1975‘s Matt Healy.

In a recent interview with Beat, Matt discussed the culture of streaming and sales.

“The artists whose single streams are in the billions, people don’t buy their albums, necessarily…Ellie Goulding, people will listen to her music at the gym and they will listen to it on playlists. They’ll put the Pop playlist on and it will get out there. When it comes to her putting out a record, which is someone saying, ‘Will you invest in my lifestyle?’ or ‘Do you want to invest in me, as an idea?’…I have a lot of ‘Yes, I want to invest in you as an idea, and less, ‘I’ll pop this on when I’m doing whatever,’” he told the magazine.

“I’ve had 3 multi platinum albums so I feel like people have been fairly invested but ok I’ll let you have it,” Ellie responded on her Instagram Story.

One star recently apologized to Matt Healy in a public note – find out why.
